Overall I found todays session challenging, it was difficult to try and control the project as the video was improvised and not a set routine. This meant that I didn’t know the movements very well. Trying to influence what happened was also tricky as it was hard to not copy what was happening on the virtual body. I noticed that I relied on my hands to manipulate what was happening on the screen rather than using other body parts as they had the widest range of motion. Trying to interact with a virtual body was difficult because you couldn’t physically touch the body to manipulate it, this meant that if I was trying to grab a hand or other body part it didn’t look aesthetically pleasing. The three words we were given helped in terms of knowing what you wanted us to achieve otherwise I would have just danced along side the virtual body, however I do not think the helped me to come up with new ways to interact with the screen.
